Product Description
Arizona Anthill Garnet . 45ct Minimum 5mm Round. The Gemstone Was Mined In The United States And Cut In China.

Pyrope garnet, long known for its saturated red color, is found in various world locations. But a very special variety is homegrown in the USA-Anthill Garnet. But how does such a beautiful gem get such a strange-sounding name! Found primarily in the four corners area of Arizona, which meets with southwest Colorado, northwest New Mexico and southeast Utah. These small Garnets are called Anthill Garnets because they are mined by ants. It is the ants that do the excavation work when digging or remodeling their anthills! Pyrope Garnet, including Anthill Garnet, is generally a purer red than other Garnet varieties. It's easy to see how they could be confused for Ruby with their fiery red color. The name Pyrope is derived from "pyropos" meaning fire-like or fiery-eyed. Never mined commercially due to limited supply, AntHill Garnet is collected by locals after occasional rainstorms. Fiery in color, Anthill Garnets are an extraordinary American Gem!

Very nicely colored, clean gemstone, excellent cutting. I am working on setting this into a unisex ring CST195 as a gift for my son. I will enter a photo of it there when I am finished. Thanks to the ants for a mining job well done!

Arizona Beauties!
I bought two of these and couldn't have done better if they were sold as a matched pair. Each weighed .50 ct, so my pair is a 1.00cwt. They are cut beautifully with the same pavilion depth and the 5 mm size for each will make a great pair of earrings or side stones for a ring or pendant if I decide to have them set into jewelry. The color is open and a vibrant red. I am so pleased those little Arizona ants pushed these up so I could add them to my collection!!!

More red than I thought
I was pleasantly surprised to find the stone lighter in color and more red than in the picture. I wanted an Arizona anthill garnet for a long time, and the price on this one is great.
